    Hurley Building Redevelopment | 19 Staniford St | West End

    ^^^Yeah I am wondering if there is anywhere in the city that is even zoned over 400' to begin with. FAA limits are the true hard caps we have to work with, while zoning is the arbitrary cap in order to extort from potential developers.

    Hurley Building Redevelopment | 19 Staniford St | West End

    It says the max zoning height is only 400'. Obviously a variance will need to be requested, as is the norm in Boston. That way everybody gets their pound of flesh. Does anybody have access to a zoning map, and what is the highest zoning the city of Boston allows as-of-right?

    Clarendon Hill Redevelopment | 34 North Street | Somerville

    For what it is and what it's replacing it's perfectly fine and probably the right scale for the area. There are other apartments in the area that rival the height, so not like it's breaking precedent with the rest of residential Somerville. Anything that isn't a 5-over-1 already gets a few...

    South Station Tower | South Station | Downtown

    Which ones specifically are you referring to? How "new" are you referring to? The new Comcast is bad, and the W Hotel has that horrible blank wall, but the FMC Tower is perfectly acceptable. I also love the Liberty Place fraternal twins if you are considering anything post 1985 (ie post...

    Parcel 12 | Massachusetts Avenue at Boylston Street | Back Bay

    I consider it a notable downgrade, even though the project is still a slam dunk. The more different colors popping up around the city, the better, and I preferred the green taller and red shorter buildings vs changing them to white. Between this and the Accordia proposal, now I really want to...

    ⚫ Four Seasons Tower @ CSC | 1 Dalton Street | Back Bay

    How do the 2 shorter Millennium Place towers do it? There's your answer. It doesn't even have to be 100% enclosed. Just the illusion that it's, ya know, DONE, would be enough.

    Cambridge Infill and Small Developments

    This is something I agree with you on, 100%. At this point though, I don't think the area is salvageable. They should have done this a long time ago, and have passed the point of no return.
